Not bad for a neopro like Vendrame, he finished ahead of Calmejane who's flying at the moment.



Is Vendrame a propper puncheur or more of a Sprinter who is good uphill?

He's great in hilly one day races, he already finished 4th in the 2016 Coppa Sabatini before even turning pro. Last year he was out for 3 months because he got hit by a truck on a training ride. His biggest dream is winning the RVV, frankly I don't really know if he's a proper puncheur, but he's not that great as a sprinter, even in a small group he's usually not the winner, he's fast enough to be one of the fastest, but usually there's someone faster than him.

I've been a fan since he won the 2015 Giro Belvedere, but back then he attacked earlier and was able to hold on.
That was a great race, Robert Power destroyed everyone on the final climb, but they cought him, Herklotz went crazy on the descent and was also able to catch up to Power's group and in the end Mühlberger (who was climbing better than Herklotz, but of course not as good as Power who was just on another level) won the sprint for 2nd.

Back to Sarthe, today Matteo Malucelli finished 2nd behind Coquard on the sprint stage, he's also having a good first season as a neopro.

Lilian Calmejane won the 'queen stage' of Circuit de la Sarthe after attacking with 20km to go. He has a good chance to win the race.

I'm really looking forward to him in the Ardennes.

Coquard wins last stage ahead of Venturini and Bennati.

Vichot tried to gerrans Calmejane (i.e winning on bonus seconds) but didn't succeed.

With Gorka winning. He's stepped it up a notch this year. I guess he doesn't just want to be "the other Izagirre"
